Episode 22 arrives and its Rob’s choice “one of the best 80s comedies”, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, the 1988 comedy classic from Frank Oz starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin. Michael Caine is the distinguished English gent, who also happens to be a world class con-man, then along comes Steve Martin another con-man but a brash, American much to his annoyance - the fun really begins when they meet the charming Glenne Headly. It's easy to forget how funny Steve Martin was during the late 70s and throughout the 80s - if you’re looking for a reminder then this is a great place to start. A near perfect balance of physical comedy and witty one liners.
[supsystic-tables id='23'] Dirty Rotten Scoundrels scored reasonably high at 3.8. The Twitter response was pretty favourable too. Don’t take this film too seriously - it could have starred David Bowie and Mick Jagger (!) enjoy the silliness and the genuinely enjoyable twist ending. What do you guys think?
